Halloween Havoc 1990

The 2nd annual Halloween Havoc was held on Oct 27th 1990 at the UIC Pavilion in Chicago Illinois and featured 2 brutal main event matches.

The first was for the NWA US Tag Team Titles. 
Champions, The Steiner Brothers defended against The Nasty Boys.   The Steiners invoked their inner Bruiser and Crusher as they jumped the Nasty Boys before the bell rang and never let up.  

The crowd for this entire card was over the top excited and made this one of the best PPVs in a long time.

The #1 main event for this Halloween Havoc was NWA World Champion Sting meeting Sid Vicious for the that Heavyweight Title.

The ESPN show E60 did a documentary on the sad decline of Razor Ramon AKA Scott Hall.  

From his days as "Big" Scott Hall to Razor Ramon to the NWO they look at Scott Halls spiral into drug addiction, alcoholism to now where he is on 11 medications for a number of ailments.
This was a well done show and Scott gave them access to himself and the WWE really stepped up with interviews and video.
